Jeremy Wade

is a performer, performance maker, curator and teacher. After graduating from the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam and receiving a Bessie Award for his first evening length performance Glory at the Dance Theater Workshop in New York City in 2006, he moved to Berlin and has worked in close collaboration with the HAU Hebbel am Ufer since then. Wade recently created Fountain, Together Forever, Death Asshole Rave Video and DrawnOnward, exploring the death of man, zombie subjectivity, strange modes of being and affective relationality to undermine the social codes that define and oppress our bodies. In combination with a rigorous teaching practice, Wade’s inclination to subversion extends towards the curation, production and subsequent hosting of ecstatic events, series, festivals and symposia, such as Politics of Ecstasy (2009), Creature Feature (2009–11), The Great Big Togetherness (2015) and recently Take Care (2017), a symposium at HAU in the framework of the NO LIMITS Internationales Theaterfestival Berlin based on the relational ethics and critical use of care that disability culture demands. In 2017/18 Wade will direct a three-part performance project addressing care as a polit- ical methodology comprised of The Battlefield Nurse (a drag lecture performance investigating the structures vs. symptoms that are makingus sick), The Future Clinic for Critical Care (a world-making forum dedicated to art, activism and social work) and Between Sirens, a new trio processing the political imagination of systemic support.
